Hey guys, I have an HIS 5770 right now, and I want to upgrade. One card I'm looking at right now is the GTX 470. Is upgrading to a GTX 470 going to make much of a difference?
I can spend about $300 on a card, and I wanna get the best for the price. So I would like to know what the best card is for around $300
cheers :hello:

500 watt psu, Asus M4A785TD-V EVO, Windows XP 32 bit, 4 gigs DDR3, AMD II X4 Black Edition.
I am looking for a card that can play new games coming out on maxed settings on a single monitor. All I do with my computer is gaming :) 
my resolution is 1440x900
thanks for the reply!

At 1400x900 you should already be able to max out games with a 5770.I would reccomend getting a GTX560.The GTX560 is on par with the GTX470 but the GTX560 is a little faster and is better at tesselation.Not to mention it the GTX560 consumes a lot less power and runs a lot cooler.The GTX560 is plenty for your resoultion and it will still be a good card even if oyu upgrade to a 1080p monitor in the future.

MSI Twin Frozr II GTX560 $260=$240 after MIR + $5 shipping.

What is the make/model of your PSU?

my psu is an Antec EarthWatts 500W.
I can't max the newer games, and even older games like BFBC2 out cause my shader model is 3...
Thanks man, I am thinking of upgrading to a 1080p monitor in the future, so i will definately look around for this card on a site that ships to Canada ;)

5770 supports up to shader model 5, thats included in DX11.

The real reason you are stuck on DX9 is the windows xp, upgrade to win 7 (64bit) and all your problems will go away... :D

I guess for now I'll just get Windows 7 :) 


if you can muster up an extra $30-50 dollars then you can get both windows 7 AND a GTX 560...I think you would be very happy if you did so.

100 % agree with purple stank!! GTX 560Ti is the best card for the price/fps... it was like only $.43 per fps or something in 1080P....

I'm going to get Windows 7 Home Premium, and then hold on to my 5770 a little bit longer.. I know some people who work with some people who can get Windows 7 for a really great price (they got theres around 25 bucks :p  ) hoping to get it for that much too.
When I do upgrade my video card, it will most likey be to one of those bad boys :) 
Thanks for the help everyone!
